Remember when razor-thin eyebrows were all the rage in the 90s? You may even still be trying to grow back your brows after over-plucking them for so long. Well, the Marlene Dietrich look is long over (even though she was way before her time in her brow game). These days, the hottest brows are bigger and thicker. Think Cara Delevingne and Megan Fox. The best look right now calls for brows that are not only thicker but fuller. You want a thick line that is filled in fully. Thicker brows create a more dramatic framing of your eyes that will make your overall look more striking.
In the past, a high and defined arch was favored. However, you can’t get that look with a thick brow. To do so, you would need to have brows going halfway up your forehead and extending out to your temples. With a thicker brow, you will have a slight arch. There is just enough lift to ensure that your brows don’t look like two fuzzy caterpillars resting over your eyes, but not so much arch as to look cartoonish.
Not everyone can grow a thick or full brow. You may not have the natural hair growth for it. But you can still get the look by filling in your brows with shadow or liner. If you have lighter hair, you will want to choose a shadow or liner that matches your darker roots. Therefore, your brows may appear a shade or two darker than your hair.
However, if you have darker hair, you will want to choose a shadow or liner that is a shade or two lighter than your hair. By choosing the right color to fill in your brows, you will create a more balanced and natural look that works in tandem with your hair. Follow up filling in your brows by using a brow brush to shape them and smooth them into place. You may need to use a gel or clear mascara to tame especially unruly brows.
Some of you might still have thinner brows from trying to keep up with earlier trends. The good thing about hair is that it grows back. You just need to let your brows grow in fully and then go see a professional to have them shaped. Unfortunately, you may have to wait up to six months for the hair to grow back fully since brow hair grows in cycles. Just be patient and channel your natural goddess look in the meantime.
You can encourage your hair to grow faster by applying a few drops of coconut oil or Vitamin E oil on your brows each night. These oils are dense in nutrients that will help the hair grow faster and to grow in thicker. Give yourself time and use the right tools and you’ll soon have eyebrows that make you look like the next big superstar.
